There has been no Turkish penetration into Greece’s airspace, defence ministry sources said on Wednesday, denying a report appearing on the website of the Turkish newspaper “Hurriyet”.

Citing a despatch of the Turkish news agency DHA, “Hurriyet” reported that Turkish fighter aircraft had conducted an operation against two Turkish coast guard vessels in Greek territorial waters.

Talking to the ANA, the defence ministry sources said there was a “natural mobilisation” on the Greek side in response to developments generally, as part of the effort to monitor and supervise the country’s sea borders.
